Social Development minister Alicia Kirchner has defended the achievements of the Néstor and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner administrations obtained over the last 10 years, and insisted that it was impossible to maintain the pace of advances without "upsetting some interests."

The politician backed the national government's social policies since 2003, highlighting changes in quality of life in the past decade.

"Perhaps most importantly, since 2003 people have begun to talk about right, respect, and that the heart of political action must be the person and the family, not finances," Kirchner argued in a column written today for Tiempo Argentina.

"Young people have waved this national, popular project's flag right from the beginning, together with thousands of Argentines who had been left to their own fates, they have become the engine of that model's intensification."

Referring to the public works carried out during the Victory Front administrations, the minister pointed out that "as the president says, we do not have time to inaugurate them."

Kirchner also attacked what she dubbed "paper democrats," opponents of the government's public policies, and argued that "they stigmatise those who have the least and they do it with an almost self-destructive purpose."
